GitLab’s unconventional journey to CI/CD and Kubernetes
Sara Kassabian, GitLab
Engineering teams are under pressure to provide value in the form of new features, all while minimizing cycle time. Oftentimes the instinct is to adopt modern tooling to make that happen. Continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) is baked into GitLab, our single application for the DevOps lifecycle, and we are undergoing a major migration to Kubernetes to speed up our cycle time even more. But our journey to CI/CD and eventually Kubernetes has been unconventional, as the Delivery team elected to stress our current system as we step into continuous delivery on GitLab.com before migrating entirely over to Kubernetes.
Contributor Summit San Diego Schedule Announced!
Josh Berkus – Red Hat, Paris Pittman – Google, Jonas Rosland – VMware
There are many great sessions planned for the Contributor Summit, spread across five rooms of current contributor content in addition to the new contributor workshops. Since this is an upstream contributor summit and we don’t often meet, being a globally distributed team, most of these sessions are discussions or hands-on labs, not just presentations. We want folks to learn and have a good time meeting their OSS teammates.
